1st Notice originated from a consultancy established in 1998 which applied engineering principles to human resource management and developed a blueprint to analyze or design and structure organizations. Associated web sites became leading authorities on staffing and human resource performance.

Most engagements involved working with organization leaders to develop the optimum mission, objectives and metrics and implementing performance metrics. During an engagement for Merck Research Laboratories it became apparent that feedback is the essential to achieving and sustaining optimum performance.

After extensive experience with employee opinion surveys, we began collecting and analyzing feedback from candidates, external workforces and then B2B buyers. Within a few years our work had saved organizations tens of millions of dollars, driven even greater increases in sales and significantly improved workforce engagement and satisfaction.

When the Penn State child sex abuse scandal broke the 1st Notice leadership resolved to understand why such incidents go unreported and what, if anything can be done to facilitate prompt notification, the possibility of which is likely to preclude at least some negative occurrences.

After four years of the most comprehensive research of its kind including data from almost 115,000 candidates, temporaries, employees, consumers, B2B buyers, college students and parents 1st Notice published “Comprehensive Analyses of Factors Associated with Communicating Serious Issues, Feedback and Suggestions.”

No one knows more about missions, objectives, metrics, feedback and connecting with key constituencies. And our applications use that information to measurably Protect, Engage and Optimize.

No organization is more trusted with important information than 1stNotice. We now have over a 20-year legacy of absolutely confidential and secure data collection and management. 1stNotice has processed more than 1,267,000 notifications and surveys and the responses and identity of every single participant has been completely cloaked and protected. Over 57,000 organizations have our guides and toolkits and over 3,900 have relied on our applications for at least three years.
